What a wonderful surprise this lovely hotel turned out to be! Not having much faith in the far north accomodation after a disappointing B&B in Russell. We were on the move and my husband found The Old Oak on the internet. I must say the professional photos don't do it justice. From the time we arrived we were enveloped with a wonderful luxurious and tasteful vibe. Our suite was gorgeous ... Not exactly subscribing to the interior design school of 'more is more' and not minimalistic either ... every detail was thought out, made of good quality and had the cool factor. Feeling like a rockstar in cognito we enjoyed water views of the harbour from out wrap around balcony, greats eats from the stunning Indian next door and of course the world famous fish chips just up the road, lovely fresh picked flowers in our room every day and good filter coffee to wake us up ... we were happy as clams. We had a little sitting room to watch movies in at night and were only ever 1 hour away from great beaches with white sands and turquoise waters and 5 star lunches - yes Kauri Cliffs does do casual lunches just book 48 hours in advance. We booked for 2 nights and stayed for 4 and seriously thought of staying longer... Our lovely hosts Jean and Gary were friendly and helpful yet not in your face ... I enjoyed chatting with them... Would we go back? Of course!!! Perfect for a romantic getaway anytime of the year! !Ness & Paul
